Mass Effect 3: Special Edition only £5.95 on Wii U

Fancy saving a few quid on Mass Effect 3: Special Edition on the Wii U? Go on, you 'll just about be able to finish it before Xenoblade Chronicles X arrives in December.

The Wii U Special Edition of the game includes lots of DLC for those of you who want to finish the trilogy on a different format to the one where you've created a save already. To make up for this, there's an 'interactive back story experience' which catches you up and allows you to make some important choices to set up the third game. Other extras include the From Ashes and Extended Cuts and a new heavy weapon. Extra multiplayer content includes the Resurgence, Rebellion and Earth packs. While we wouldn't advise replacing the first two games with the interactive comic, it's not a bad way to go if you don't have the 80 hours spare to play them.

Thanks to MrChi.

EA have cut the price on their Ultimate Action Bundle, which includes BF 4, Mass Effect 3, Dead Space 3, and Medal of Honor, down to £14.99 from £29.99. It's a fine bundle price for the four games, though we'd question the logic of playing Mass Effect 3 out of sync, and Dead Space 3 is easily the weakest of the games in the Dead Space series.

That said, if you can find deals for ME 1and 2, and perhaps already have the first two Dead Space titles, then this is a great package, and well worth £15 regardless.

Mass Effect series mega sale now live on PS3

All three Mass Effect games are now available for download on PS3 for some incredibly tempting prices. There's really no excuse if you haven't played them yet as these prices are even cheaper than most preowned deals.

The sale lasts until January 22nd, but we'd recommend acting on this deal fast, just in-case you forget. Chances are, many of you are yet to play the series as the early games were Xbox 360 exclusives for so long. So give yourself a New Year's treat and enjoy one of the best trilogies in gaming.

Thanks to roryharvey1.

What we want from a Mass Effect Trilogy remake | COMMENT

BioWare recently took to NeoGAF to poll fans about what they'd like to see from a Mass Effect Trilogy remake, and we're all for the idea. Experiencing one of the most impressive Sci-Fi space operas in recent history in a single package, brought up to date for new-gen systems, is a tantalising prospect.

But only if it's done right. To this end, we'd like to add our voices to the debate and discuss exactly what we'd ideally want from a new take on the Mass Effect trilogy.

All The DLC, Natch

What we want from a Mass Effect Trilogy remake | COMMENT

Let's start slow and simple, because this one's non-negotiable. To be worth buying as a truly complete collection, all the DLC from each game needs to be included -- or at the very least, everything except Pinnacle Station. You can keep Pinnacle Station.

Obviously we're big value fans here at Dealspwn.com, but there's a more serious point to be made, since many of the DLC packs genuinely add content and context to the all-important narrative and story. From Ashes, for example, split the fanbase and raised up a storm due to it being an optional bonus despite containing a pivotal character and extra storyline, while all of the expansions helped to flesh out the universe in some fashion. Aaryn Flynn has already suggested that a potential remake would include the DLC, "organically implemented" into the storyline, so hopefully this will be a no-brainer.

Oh, and the masterful Citadel expansion will feel even more awesome when enjoyed after 80+ hours of bonding.

Insane Wii U Bundle - Get Premium Pack + Nintendo Land + Mass Effect 3 + Mario Kart 8 (and free game) for £189.95 at The Game Collection

Well this is quite possibly the best Wii U deal we've seen in a while.

The Game Collection are offering a Wii U Premium Bundle that'll included the 32GB console with all of the trimmings and a bunch of games that include Nintendo Land, Mass Effect 3, and Mario Kart 8. Remember that with Mario kart 8 you can also download a free Wii U title for a limited time, meaning that you can essentially get MK8 and Wind Waker HD with your premium Wii U for under £200.

Should you buy it?

If you love games because games are fun, then yes. Yes you absofuckinglutely should.

Price ComparisonReview

Mass Effect 3's ending proved quite controversial, but the wounds were eased with a few post-mortem DLC fixes. Either way, there's no way you should miss out on the finale to one of the best gaming trilogys ever. With a fourth on the way, you won't want to be left behind again. So ignore all that superficial sunlight outside and hop aboard the Normandy again with Shepard and co.

Game Buzz this week is stuffed with news! We have Microsoft's latest u-turn, as they pledge to bring self-publishing to the Xbox One; Shadow of the Eternals returns, with Solid Snake actor David Hayter in tow; we look at Microsoft's assertion that they'll challenge government spying; we chat about Bobby Kotick's Activision buyout; and a BioWare concept artist shows us what Tali's face might have looked like.

Game Buzz | Episode 40 – Another Xbox One U-Turn. Recorded 26th July, 2013.

BioWare Concept Artist Shows Us What Tali’s Face Could Have Looked Like…

Along With Evolution Of Other Mass Effect / Dragon Age Designs

To say a number of people were not exactly happy with the way BioWare handled the reveal for Tali’s appearance in Mass Effect 3 is a bit of an understatement, but some recently released concept art from BioWare artist Matt Rhodes gives us an idea of what Tali could have looked like had BioWare not gone with a stock photo of a model. In a post on his official blog, Rhodes shows how he evolved the design for many of the iconic characters from BioWare’s most recent franchises, giving us insight into his design process and allowing us to see some of the ideas that ultimately didn’t make it into the final product. A word of warning though – the blog is incredibly spoiler heavy to both Mass Effect and Dragon Age games.

Download Mass Effect 3: Citadel's Soundtrack For Free

Don't worry, it's legit. BioWare have freely released the soundtrack to Mass Effect 3's latest DLC pack, and you can pick it up on the BioWare Social Network. Note that you'll need to log into your Origin account (or existing BSN account) to do so.

If you're interested, I was utterly flabbergasted by how brilliant in our 9/10 Mass Effect 3: Citadel DLC review. It's like a holiday special that gets the whole cast back together, and gives you great new memories of Mass Effect 3 without compromising the ending in any way.

Mass Effect 3: Citadel DLC Review | Good Company

Platforms: PC | PSN (£11.99) | Xbox Live (reviewed, 1200 MSP)

Developer: BioWare

Publisher: EA

Mass Effect 3's DLC pipeline has been a mixed bag. We like free multiplayer expansions, but BioWare's attempt to add new story content into a completed narrative stunk of desperation. Many of us (I speak for everyone at Dealspwn.com) simply can't face the idea of facing that ending again, and more to the point, why should we pay for more war assets that don't affect the final battle in any way? We know how it ends. Why fight it? Why bother?

Citadel is different. Though it's set before the final assault, BioWare knows that the majority of players will experience it well after their first playthrough, making it the spiritual end to the franchise if not the canonical one. It's like a Christmas or holiday special for your favourite TV show, penned after the fact by the same writers and starring the same actors who strive to make the ultimate fan service package. As such, Citadel is a barefaced excuse to just spend more time with the characters we've grown to love over the last few years, BioWare seemingly scouring the forums for every last 'what if' scenario and goofy, wonderful cameos. Topped off by an enormous house party and a rollicking adventure that brings new and old faces together for one final fling.

At face value, Citadel really shouldn't work as well as it does. But damn, it works.

BioWare have weathered major backlash from fans following Mass Effect 3's controversial ending and the roundly disappointing Dragon Age II. Though the studio still looks to its community for feedback, Dragon Age's lead writer has spoken out to suggest that the BioWare Social Network forums are becoming "increasingly toxic" and needlessly negative.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

It didn't matter if you were a Western RPG fan, or a connoisseur of JRPGs; whether you were in it for the story, the combat, the epic loot, or all of the above, there was an RPG for you this year. Many of them were hybrids, many had taken on elements from other genres in a bid to grow and expand, many of them were franchised entities, building on games that had come before in evolutionary manner. Projects went abandoned, revision left untouched, there were timesinks aplenty - too many worlds to save, characters to get to know, destinies to fulfil, and legacies to forge.

And loot. So much awesome loot.

NB. Click on the thumbnails for price comparisons and the game's title for the relevant review where available.

Title

Description

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

Borderlands 2

We described Borderlands 2 as "the best co-op shooter of its generation" and it still holds true to that accolade. Outstanding AI, superlative scripting, one of this generation's finest villains in Handsome Jack, persistent RPG mechanics and upgrades, and more loot than we knew what to do with, Borderlands 2 was a huge step up from its predecessor. Not that Borderlands 1 wasn't great, it's just that its bigger, badder, bolder brother was so very pleasing.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

Dragon's Dogma

It was broken in places, and Gransys was one of the more forgettable worlds we've seen from an RPG, but Dragon's Dogma was one hell of an endearing game. Breathtaking combat, an innovative Pawn mechanic, and deep customisation options made it a firm favourite in spite of its flaws. Plus, the opportunity to take down a hole bunch of mythical beasts made it all the sweeter. Refreshingly mature.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

Final Fantasy XIII-2

Square delivered a game that built upon, and corrected a number of the mistakes of, its predecessor, whilst sacrificing none of what made FFXIII an attractive proposition in the first place. This was a game that made few concessions to genre unbelievers, preferring to reward the faithful with some fine examples of fan service. It wasn't perfect, and it doesn't quite stand on its own two feet, but rather made a bid to be the game that FFXIII should have been...and it largely succeeded.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Big Huge Games made a big huge game, and one that was good for hundreds of hours of addictive questing. The brilliant combat and compelling skill system deserved stronger characters and a more imaginative, less insipid setting, but Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning absolutely nailed the 'Playing Game' aspect of RPGs. With gameplay this good, we were willing to forgive the compromise in the 'Role' department.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

Mass Effect 3

The third and final entry in the Mass Effect trilogy was a stunning achievement. The combat systems were better than ever, the multiplayer hugely enjoyable, and there was a sense of scale and heightened emotion that drove everything. But it was the excellent pacing and wonderful writing that rung out, providing us with some of the most memorable moments in videogaming. It's just a shame that BioWare rushed and ruined the ending. The journey was sublime; the destination found utterly wanting.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

The Last Story

If last year's JRPG spectacular - Xenoblade Chronicles - gave us forward-thinking genre pinnacle for our times, this year's The Last Story sought to create the definitive traditional JRPG. Sakaguchi's opus was beautiful, and gave the Wii a fittingly epic swansong.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

Torchlight II

Runic Games may have less than 40 developers on staff, but they delivered what was perhaps the best loot grinder since Diablo II. Practically perfect in every way, it shamed Blizzard's third effort in the aforementioned franchise through comprehensive content and exquisite execution.
